Serial Saturday #13: Two and Two

The title for today's post came real easy today.  As I mentioned a week or two ago, I'm hoping to hit 200 followers by the end of the month.  As of this morning, I only need two more to hit that magic number. 

I'm also going to show 2 pages of the SNI set today.  Trying to keep on posting these to make sure that I have all the teams represented with 50 cards each.   So here's pages 38 & 39

Card 334:  Melvin Mora, 2006 Opening Day red parallel #334/2006.  Baltimore card #11
Card 335:  Yusmeiro Petit, 2006 Topps Chrome refractor #335/599.  Miami card #12
Card 336:  Matt Moore, 2013 Topps update gold #336/2013.  Tampa Bay card #14

Card 337:  Mike Trout, 2011 Topps update gold #337/2011.  LA Angels card #19
Card 338:  Zack Greinke, 2011 Gypsy Queen brown frame #338/999.  Milwaukee card #7
Card 339:  Konard Schmidt, 2011 Bowman green #339/450.  Arizona card #11

Card 340:  Frank Robinson, 2004 Topps gold #340/2004.  Washington/Montreal card #14
Card 341:  Derell McCall, 2003 Topps gold #341/2003.  Oakland card #17
Card 342:  Cliff Lee, 2012 Gypsy Queen blue frame #342/999.  Philadelphia card #12

Was very surprised to see the Mike Trout card, a gold parallel of his RC.  Had to look it up in Beckett, and it's easy to see that this card will be the most expensive one in the set.  I actually bought that card off eBay quite a while ago.   Lucky me.
The red parallels from 2006 Opening Day are also a favorite of mine, sadly I only have 2 of them in the entire set according to my spreadsheet.  

Card 343:  Brent Morel, 2011 Topps Chrome purple refractor #343/499.  Chicago White Sox card #10
Card 344:  Justin Morneau, 2008 Topps Heritage Chrome refractor #344/599.  Minnesota card #11
Card 345:  Landon Powell, 2011 Topps gold parallel #345/2011.  Oakland card #18

Card 346:  Brayan Pena, 2012 Topps gold parallel #346/2012.  Kansas City card #12
Card 347:  Gregor Blanco, 2010 Topps gold parallel #347/2010.  Kansas City card #13
Card 348:  Lonnie Chisenhall, 2012 Topps gold parallel #348/2012.  Cleveland card #14

Card 349:  Yadier Molina, 2008 Bowman blue parallel #349/500.  St. Louis card #17
Card 350:  Bruce Chen, 2011 Topps gold parallel #350/2011.  Kansas City card #14
Card 351:  Aramis Ramirez, 2011 Bowman green parallel #351/450.  Chicago Cubs card #10

Kansas City takes a strong leap with 3 cards on this page, 2 of them back to back.  The Brayan Pena card is a classic play at the plate card, ironically it didn't come from Brian who runs the Play at the Plate blog (although he was responsible for 2 cards on this post). I also love the Yadier Molina card as well, the simple photo of him in the catchers squat is a great shot. 

Next time up, we hit the 40 page mark. 

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Envious of that gold Trout RC!

    1. Pretty sure that I picked that up back when I first started the set. I'm sure that it would have cost a fortune after 2011!
